    Avid Elixir 5 or Elixir 7 on Cannondale F4 hardtail?

    Hi All

    I run a cannondale F4 2010 with Tektro Comp. I don't need the additional power but it squeals and it is very shameful when you hit the brakes and people think a 1965 F150 is about to run them over.

    I am thinking of upgrading to Amazon.com: avid elixir 5
    or
    Amazon.com: avid elixir 5

    I tried cleaning the rotors and it did help a bit? Should i change the pads?
    Or just get the Elixirs?

    at that price, get some shimano slx brakes and plain vanilla shimmy rotors, less hassles.
